Arab secular forces on the rise?

What was striking about the demonstrations in Egypt today is that they were secular led and fed.  The lousy Muslim Brothers typically decided to stay home.  Of course, the Hariri violent protests in Lebanon: those were not secular.  Those were Salafi led and fed.  But those are part of the "pro-Western March 14 movement"--as they are described in the US press.
